Publix 3/18 (Maureen) – Paid $9.78 for $85.67 in Merchandise (88.6% Saved)

NEVER MISS A HOT DEAL! SUBSCRIBE TO OUR DAILY EMAIL NEWSLETTER!

I wasn’t overly excited about this week’s Publix ad until a couponing friend alerted me to the BOGO Publix digital coupons that match the current BOGO sale on Purina ONE dry cat food.  Dry cat food is something I donate (no pets), but what really caught my attention is that one of the two digital coupons is labeled “$9.99 off two bags” and is deducting $9.99 on a BOGO $7.99 sale, so $2 moneymaker!  A few other sales were decent, but I can see going forward that I am really going to miss the added savings from the $5/$40 Winn Dixie coupons that are no longer available to print (they can only be activated as Winn Dixie digital coupons).  I’ll adjust, but the first few shopping trips following a loss of savings (as with periodic coupon tightening policies) is always a wrench.

As always, cashback rebates vary (in value and kind) by account.  Some cashback offers I used may no longer be available to activate and some coupons I used may no longer be available to print or activate (if digital).  Happy shopping!

  1. I bought 2 bags of the Purina Cat food with my groceries and my digital didn’t come off. I asked the cashier about my digital cat food coupon not being used. I must have seemed frustrated because someone else come over and asked me what was wrong. Cashier rerang everything and the coupons still weren’t taken off. I showed the supervisor my digital coupon on my phone so she took the value of one bag off and I only had to pay the tax. My sister has a digital coupon that I want to use but won’t if it is going to be this difficult. Anyone have any tips for a smooth Purina one transaction?

    • The coupons are almost identical. The person who tipped me off said she bought four bags and one DQ deducted the full $7.99 while the other deducted $9.99. I also had both BOGO coupons clipped, so I bought four bags and both coupons came off exactly as hers had. No intervention necessary. The coupons came off automatically when the cashier hit “Tender.” I couldn’t begin to guess why your coupon did not come off, but I had a problem a couple of weeks ago when I bought three boxes of Huggues diapers, and a $7/2 digital specificall for the boxes did not come off. I showed the digital coupon to the cashier (I was cashing out at the courtesy desk because I only had three boxes of diapers and knew I would need an override).

      • Thank you. I’ll try going to a different Publix. Since I have both DQ that don’t expire til the end of the month I’m going to try to get 4 bags.

  2. There is always problem to use Publix Digital bogo coupon on bogo sale. It never works. I had Bogo and 9.99 for any 2 so both coupons came out without problem.
